    Which package was not upgraded?
    Why was it not upgraded?
    Do I need to do anything about this?

    I recommend:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Then you will see what the upgrade is and you'll have the opportunty to choose Y or N. If you're not sure then choose N and post back here (copy & paste the terminal output).

    That was helpful and informative:

    The following packages have been kept back:
    grace
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
    arv@arv-desktop:~$

    Seems that "grace" is the package that was not upgraded.

    After the "dist-upgrade" I was able to do "sudo apt-get install grace" successfully. From the install output it looks as if grace was actually installed but 2 needed libraries were missing:

    Setting up libhdf5-7 (1.8.8-9) ...
    Setting up libnetcdfc7 (1:4.1.3-6) ...
    Setting up grace (1:5.1.22-13) ...

    Now "grace" works and I don't have the error message.

    Thanks for the assistance.
